Tibet Girls School

Recipient of the 2010 Women and Engaged Buddhism Award, the Tibet Girls School was opened in 2008 in Eastern Tibet providing housing, food, clothing, education, healthcare and job training for nomad girls. In 2010, our school was destroyed by a massive earthquake.

After the Earthquake

  • We sent $10,000 in donations as aid to our girls and their families.
  • Continuing our school in tents, we graduated 14 students who have gone on to schools and jobs and continue helping their families.
  • Due to the difficulties after the earthquake we have been forced to relocate our program.

Investing in the Women & Girls of Tibet

MachikThe Tibet Girls School will carry on its mission through our partnership with Machik, a non-profit organization founded in 2002. Our funds support the Machik Mother's Wish initiative, providing scholarships to young nomadic women who do not have equal access to formal education. Tibet Girls School and Machik are committed to building a global network of support for the bold and resilient women of Tibet who are seeking new ways of remaking their world, one inspired step at a time.

"I thank Machik for bringing education to the women and girls of Tibet, and for creating a bridge to women of the world."
–Gloria Steinem
Machik Advisory Board Member



We are so grateful to our many generous supporters and wish you to know that you are making a difference in the lives of our girls. Our first class arrived out of the mountains, illiterate and now they can read and write Tibetan and Chinese and are computer literate as well.
